edition of the show. it begins with allen kohns asking cal thomas a question we all knew the answer to already. >> cal short for calvin? >> yes, it is. >> your name is -- your calvin would be your -- >> that's my middle name, yes. >> what's your first name? >> john. i was named after coolidge's sons. >> why did you go with cal rather than john? >> i wanted to identify with the cal ripken jr. >> okay, so that is a great example of what you could learn during a talkative commercial break. i knew cal was short for calvin but didn't know calvin was actually cal thomas' middle name, didn't know he was named after coolidge's two sons and i didn't know that cal thomas doesn't know why he calls himself cal instead of john. that's a wonderful example of what "behind the breaks" could be at its very best, trivia revelations about the cal thomases of the world. but then cal thomas made the mistake of thinking because they were off the air and just talking for the internet, it was safe to bring up the subject that no one at fox news could talk about. >> anybody want to bring up the subject we'r
am david, a resident of cal hollow. i want to talk briefly about two items. one, we had the gentleman say he did not think people knew much about zoning. i want to tell you that every meeting we have, we spend too much time on zoning matters. at the annual meeting, there is a complete review of zoning. should perfection be the victim of the good? this project is so far from good, i don't think we have to worry about that proposition. i want to pick up on what the last speaker said. the expenditure of $9.1 million is completely unjustified and grossly excessive. these are precious funds. these are affordable housing unit funds. they could be much more beneficially spent. what is the reason for paying so much? the building was for sale. it was small. it was smallpox these other reasons given by one of the proponents. if it was small, why are they spending $5.1 million to renovate it to make it sufficiently large inside to house these number of people? the justifications supposedly given are not justifications, they are explanations. they are not reasons, they are causes. what does this

: good morning. cal fire is cutting the last year of a three-year contract with the nation's largest air tanker. these are the planes that are used in fighting a fire. the dc-10 planes carry up to 12,000 gallons of fire retardant which is a huge tool for california in fighting fires. a major concern as we head into the summer fire season. the cal fire was told they had to cut $34 million from its budget. canceling this contract with the planes will save the state about $7 million. that's about one-fourth of the total cuts they were forced to make. this isn't the first time cal fire has cancelled their contract with the southern california company. they did so back in 2009. but the concern now is that they have already cut 730 seasonal firefighters. so cutting the contract with the planes means grounding one of the state's most important tools in fighting a huge fire. cal fire says no one is happy. but it's the best choice among poor alternatives. >> tough budget times we are having to make some tough decisions and that was one of them. >> it's expensive but it's cost- effective. and what
